USA-made shrink-sleeve labeler

USA-made shrink-sleeve labeler



Designed for maximum efficiency and productivity, the PDC R-500 TS-CB Shrink labeler applies shrink sleeves at speeds between 500 and 600 labels per minute on a single in-line head. The sleeve applicator's continuous "steady state" movement of sleeving materials during the cutting and application process uses the lowest web speed possible and eliminates indexing of the web found in other systems. This results in a stable, high-speed system.

The mandrel-style labeler uses PDC's proprietary blade assembly—a far more effective and longer-lived alternative to the fragile "spinning knives" that are standard in most competitors' equipment. Mandrels, feed screws and other "change" parts can all be switched out quickly thanks to PDC's exclusive "tool-less" changeover feature and menu driven parameters. It uses standard, widely available components, and is available in standard or customized configurations, including optional solid stainless steel construction for wash down environments and blow-off systems, barcode inspection systems, coders and conveyors.
